A Nigerian man has recounted to social media users his experience of how his landlord threatened him out of his apartment just after 6 months of renting the house.
The man identified as @folastag shared this on Twitter, explaining that he spent millions of naira to renovate the house but his landlord sent him packing after 6 months.
According to him, the landlord claimed to need the apartment for his family who are coming from the US but was shocked that shortly after he left, the man put the apartment on lease for twice the price he paid.
The young man’s statement read “I went through one of the worst experiences of my life between August 2022 and January 2023… After moving into a new space in February 2022, spending millions to renovate and set up the space. The Landlord issued a quit notice exactly 6 months after…”
In a subsequent post, @folastag revealed the landlords face and identified him as Edafe Okurume aka Blackmon while also adding that his family called him from the US and informed him that he’s mentally ill and was lying about them coming to Nigeria.
